Every year, approximately ten thousand animals lose their lives at our County shelter. For many, it is not because of a terminal illness or severe injury, but for something easily cured or mended. The numbers are overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Almost two hundred communities across the country have ended the unnecessary deaths. The people of Pima County can do it, too.    

By joining with our community and other local animal welfare groups, Pima Paws For Life is committed to helping create an adoption guarantee community, where no animal is destroyed just because it is homeless.

Pima Paws For Life now has the use of kennel property to enable us to take dogs in need from Pima Animal Care Center! We will primarily be pulling dogs with medical needs, which will incur extra veterinary care costs before they are ready for their forever homes. These are the animals most at risk, so we feel it is imperative to our mission to first focus our efforts on their well being. We anticipate being able to save anywhere from approximately 60 to 80 dogs a month the first year. That is 720 to 960 lives saved! We are anxious to get started, but we need your help.  

You have the power to make a difference! A donation of just $5.00 a month will help us reach our life-saving goals, and give these animals the second chance they deserve. Remember, it doesn’t happen without the support of animal loving people like you!  

If you would like to donate, you may use the donate buttons on our website . You can also go to PayPal and send the donation . If you prefer to write a check, you can mail your donation to:

Pima Paws For Life

2509 W. Zinnia Avenue

Tucson, AZ 85705

For in-kind donations, these are some of the things needed:

  • Hot water heater, 30 gallon (electric)
  • Double sided deep basin stainless steel kitchen sink
  • Full size refrigerator
  • Mini refrigerator
  • Washing machine
  • Clothes dryer (electric)
  • Dog grooming tub
  • 2 grooming tables
  • 2 office desks
  • 2 office chairs
  • 2 inkjet printers
  • Towels
  • Washcloths/Rags
  • Blankets
  • Chew-proof dog toys of all sizes, such as Kongs and Nylabones

At this time, we do not have an area to house cats. However, with the support of the cat lovers in our community we hope to change that in the near future!

We ask you to be a part of our life-saving journey, and give the chance for life to those who have none without you.
